Twice a year, Saint Luke’s takes an enthusiastic group of members and friends to the Synod’s retreat center, Camp Koinonia, in the Catskill mountains in Upstate New York. The Summer Retreat is usually scheduled toward the end of July to the beginning of August, and the Winter Retreat in February.
Besides the time spent together in Bible Study and worship, Camp Koinonia offers several summer and winter activities. The outdoor highlight of the Summer Retreat is an afternoon spent rafting on the Delaware River. The Winter Retreat includes such activities as inner-tubing, cross-country skiing, and ice skating.
Both retreats are excellent opportunities to worship and reflect outside the confines of the city, and are made available to anyone wishing to attend, regardless of their financial situation.
